Book 1: The Tub of Happiness


Tagon:One of my men is dead, and it's your fault. Tell me, Drone-Collective lawyer, what do you think I could expect to get if I sued the K.F.D.A. for this?
Attorney Drone 1:Hmmmm. The use of force was warranted, but entry was not... There are precedents... I'd say about two thousand kilocreds.
Tagon:And if we settle out of court?
Attorney Drone 1:That depends entirely on what you are willing to settle for.
Tagon:I was thinking of an exchange of penalties. What's the fine for killing an attorney?
Attorney Drone 1:One thousand... HEY!!
Tagon:So, shall we settle out of court?
